Vancouver, BC – In Vancouver’s active industrial real estate landscape, Avison Young is adding to its deep bench strength on its industrial team by welcoming the arrival of Ilya Tihanenoks as Principal.

“Ilya’s depth of experience in advising and negotiating industrial sales and leases across the Metro Vancouver region will be a tremendous addition to our team as we work together to help clients make critical real estate decisions,” said Michael Keenan, Principal and Managing Director of Avison Young in Vancouver. “Ilya will be responsible for advising clients in one of the most competitive, in-demand real estate segments in all of North America.”

In his role, Tihanenoks will steer industrial owners and occupiers through complex market fundamentals in Vancouver’s core industrial areas. With nearly a decade of experience, Tihanenoks is known for his local market expertise and his “think like a client” approach, always putting his clients’ interests at the heart of all his interactions. Having started his career at CBRE, he has been involved in some of Vancouver’s largest industrial leasing and investment deals, completing over $1B of transactions across 5.7 million square feet of space. Tihanenoks is a graduate of the University of Victoria’s Business and Economics program. His career recognitions include Western Canada’s Rookie of the Year and Vancouver’s Broker Choice Award, both from CBRE. 

“Avison Young’s people-first culture resonates with my own belief in putting client interests at the forefront of everything I do,” said Tihanenoks. “I am particularly looking forward to working with the firm’s suite of technological tools and real-time data, which will help me offer even higher levels of counsel and solutions in one of Canada’s most exciting industrial markets.”
